    Today I [Wololo] fixed a few issues in the Vita implementation of Half Byte Loader, and got Doom (the PSP port) to run :)

    This is work in progress and the current plan is to release sometime after the US/EU release of the playstation Vita, assuming that doesn't get patched before.



    This is HBL (Half-Byte Loader) running Doom (a homebrew) through PS Vita's psp emulator.

    EDIT: Amended Homebrew Loader to Half-Byte Loader (thanks DinohScene!)

    Nice work, Wololo. It's awesome to see the Vita already hacked. Piece of shit portable "Device on which I can play Disgaea 3 and Persona 4 on the go" looks like it's gonna get buttfucked by hackers already. ;)

    Except this is just using the PSP emulator to run the PSP HBL, which isn't really hacking the system at all. Nothing will come out of the PSP emulator odds are.

    I'm not even saying I care about playing hacked Vita games. I honestly would just love to see PSP games hacked and playable in the Vita. That's all I care about.

    Smells like a PSP backup loader comming up next. If Half Byte's working, I find it hard to believe that it's not on the doorstep already.
    As far as I remember, the 3DS's DS Mode was "hacked" a good few hours after its release, so there you go.

    I thought HBL was Half-Byte loader?

    It could happen anyone.
    I've been out of the PSP scene since 2007, haven't kept up well so It could be that wololo changed the HBL meaning ;p

    Guys, HBL runs in user-mode. Loading actual PSP games needs either OS modification/trickery (to get eboot forms working without the PSN/checking), or kernel mode (for the virtual ISO/UMD driver).

    It's a start Rydian.
    Won't be long untill PSP games can be booted on the PSV.

    HBL was the only method of getting anything to run on later PSPs/firmwares for... almost two years?

    That's what they said when flashcarts worked on 3DS too.

    I wouldn't really see psp games being hacked for a while, though you never know really.

    I wasn't talking about PSV games.
    I clearly said PSP games.

    Yes, but that won't happen. prowler_'s example was poor. There is no way to load PSP games via this, and probably no way to do so at all once the emulator is already started. i.e. a Vita mode hack will probably be needed for PSP piracy on Vita,
